Hi this is my first post here but I've been following this sight on my fb account for a while. Please feel free to take what I say with a grain of salt. I'm trying to. I'm having a beer despite trying to quit.

I normally don't believe in conspiracy theories but I find them entertaining. I have never been worried about any of the hyped up stuff before. When I heard about this I became alarmed. After digging through this thread I emailed a certain "famous" Dr and this is what he told me:

Re: Dallas
"Nobody can predict the future accurately especially in such uncertain times

Public health officials are being entirely too cavalier about this impending epidemic

So you have a projection? Ty sir. I only ask for my two year old son. Otherwise I wouldn't care at all

Not yet, but it’s highly infective, this could be the start of an epidemic/pandemic . . .

I think the answer are getting more obvious as the day moves forward.

Nail biters and smokers, now would be a good time to reconsider your habits....

I am sure that we are been prepped for that mass vaccination for ebola that is looming in the horizon after mid term elections

You are awesome! And fast:

Thomas Duncan

Oh, do go on.
Thanks.

I don't know why it makes me feel better to have a name and a face for Patient Z, but it does. 'Too many unknowns hanging out there, I guess.

So is confirmed our nations government has infected us with ebola because lack of proper screening and tracking of people coming from infected areas

Hell, this a whole new conspiracy in the making.

Here's what I don't understand regarding the handling of the people who were in contact with the infected Thomas Duncan.


Anyone who had contact with the patient, including emergency room staff, will be under health officials' observation for 21 days. If any of those being monitored show symptoms, they'll be placed in isolation.


What exactly does that mean? Are the health officials going to walk around behind all these people, waiting for a sign? How is that even possible? I just don't have confidence that "monitoring" these folks is sufficient, assuming they have everyone.

Interesting what else the above source said.


Stanley Gaye, president of the Liberian Community Association of Dallas-Fort Worth, said the 10,000-strong Liberian population in North Texas is skeptical of the CDC's assurances because Ebola has ravaged their country.

I don't blame them for their skepticism.

I really didn't want to click that link, but I did.



From your link -


The death toll from Ebola in West Africa rose to 3,338, a sign the outbreak isn’t abating as the first case diagnosed outside Africa was confirmed in the U.S.


So it isn't abating, aka it is out of control.....

Did you watch that press conference? I caught the part before the media turned away. it wasn't going well.

The promises and guarantees sounded hollow. We are doing all we can, we are professional, we will contain it.

The last guy that got cut off said something like the chance of it spreading is "very, very, small".

What a bureaucracy they got themselves there. Gobs of spokespersons abound for this and that CEO of this and that branch. You can just tell they got themselves a money train health agency paid by exorbitant insurance costs. And they can't determine one Ebola case. They are sending contact cases home for crissakes.

"You may have Ebola, have a nice day."

Initial reports are trickling in that the person may have switched flights or had layovers in other areas. Brussels is one.

Yah, the system even let someone bring it into the US from there. And then only released the info after the press revealed it.

Ya know, I have been on the fence about this. This is what these people live and breathe for right? They get a job for saving people from "epidemics". They train for this very thing. And here we have the mother load of viruses, and all we get is, meh... nothing to see here.

I don't want them to be jumping for joy, not at all, but they just seem so relaxed about it.

I don't have confidence in that monitoring either, so they remain on the job?

But they quarantined the ambulance drivers? or am I wrong?

they are confident because the cure is here, see they got the vaccine, nothing to worry about, just waiting for the people outrage when the infection goes beyond Texas borders.

I am sure that the doses are ready to be shipped to every state in the nation, hell let get the littler children, pregnant women and the elderly first.

The despicable way in whish American corporate elite money, we are all expendable until the want to save us.

Because let face it, a none working economy doesn't produce anything, if we all infected, soo they will wait for the right moment to tells us we all going to be cure

Then you're really not going to want to look here, an excerpt:


GARRETT: It is, indeed, out of control. It has been for quite some time. I don't think it's clear that it ever was in control at any given moment since it first broke out in March in Guinea.

Hi storm dancer. The EMTs were tested, results were negative at this time. The term I heard for what they are under is "reverse Isolation". That means self isolation at home (whatever that means).

I interpret that to mean, You may have Ebola. Go home, have a nice incubation.

As far as the details of that, in the vacuum of minimal information, I can only wonder…

Did they take the family car home? Did they ride the bus?

Are they supposed to stay at home? How do they "self isolate" at home with the wife and kids?

Heres a long link that describes the "Monitoring" and little else about it. It does contain some update information in general since their "press conference".

Here is the story from Liberia, of how Mr. Duncan probably contracted Ebola.

It is an incredibly sad look into how quickly this virus can decimate a household & neighborhood. www.nytimes.com...

In a pattern often seen here in Monrovia, the Liberian capital, the family of the woman, Marthalene Williams, 19, took her by taxi to a hospital with Mr. Duncan’s help on Sept. 15 after failing to get an ambulance, said her parents, Emmanuel and Amie Williams. She was convulsing and seven months pregnant, they said.

Turned away from a hospital for lack of space in its Ebola treatment ward, the family said it took Ms. Williams back home in the evening, and that she died hours later, around 3 a.m.


(click the link for the rest of the story)

I hope he is able to make a full recovery, and that everyone in Dallas possibly exposed, does as well.

Thanks JC, you always got my back don't you?


I am also having issue with the fact that some areas have just stopped reporting altogether. So, what are the real numbers then?

Stay safe out there JC.

I remember that thread--thank you for pulling it up. It's a must-read for all. Is it just a matter of time before we hear rumors and reports of Ebola cases in Anytown? And would any of us truly be surprised?
